Tennessee Williams


Tennessee Williams (1911-1983) explored passion with daring honesty and forged a poetic theatre of raw psychological insight that shattered conventional proprieties and transformed the American stage. The autobiographical THE GLASS MENAGERIE brought what Mr. Williams called “the catastrophe of success,” a success capped by A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, one of the most influential works of modern American literature. An extraordinary series of masterpieces followed, including VIEUX CARRE, SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH, THE ROSE TATTOO, ORPHEUS DESCENDING and the classic CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF.
